Labour to Grow Better

CHRISTIAN SCARS

 “Indeed, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested and chosen you in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He loves you too much to allow it to grow.

That is why Jehovah refines us in the furnace of affliction. When there are (and there always is) ungodly behavior, belief or dispositions in a Christians life.

Jehovah first bring it to His child’s attention and inform them of the way to correct this disease.

When the child stubbornly refuse to obey our Heavenly Father, then He brings afflictions to them to encourage them to reform their ways.

The longer the child refuses the Fathers disciple, the stronger the discipline becomes until it crushes the disobedience in the child. It is not pleasant but it is what is best for us in the walk to Heaven.

I have been through it and every Christian will go through it as well. Sometimes we learn quick, sometimes (like me) we learn slow so we endure a lot of afflictions until the lesson of obedience is learned in every aspect of our life.

“Labour to grow better under all your afflictions, lest your afflictions grow worse, lest God mingle them with more darkness, bitterness and terror.” — John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for patiently creating this child of Yours into a obedient, loving child through many afflictions when I was a stubborn and obstinate child. I pray I never have to hurt Your precious heart by forcing You to discipline me in such a manner every again because I love You so much. I exalt You in the name of He who disciplines those He loves so dearly Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

It is a test of the Heart

tested in affliction

 I know also, my God, that You test the heart and delight in uprightness and integrity. 1 Chronicles 29:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times a trial is a test.

It is a test of our faith in the providence of our Heavenly Beloved. A test to see if we trust Him in His word, promise , unto us. It is a test of our maturity, not for Jehovahs sake but for ours. It reveals where we need to work more, either by ourselves, or in harmony with the Holy Spirit or to work at completely surrendering unto Jehovah- which is an act of faith.

Many times I have cried out to my Beloved and asked Him why this was happening to me. Why are you refusing to Help me? It was only later that He revealed to me that it was a test.

Sometimes I passed and was ready for Him to mature me in the next step to becoming a mature child of His.

Sometimes I failed and would have to relearn the lessons He was teaching me. He was not angry with me but encouraging me and patient with me.

So, when you are experiencing a trial, tribulation or deep agony have faith that there is a Divine purpose for it and you will come through it with His amazing providence.

As well you will become every closer unto Him through this process.

“For God to explain a trial would be to destroy its purpose, calling forth simple faith and implicit obedience.” — Alfred Edersheim

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees who see my life from beginning until my entrance into Heavens gate. Thank you that through the tests You have allowed to come my way, You have blessed me with coming ever closer in our loving relationship. I praise You in the name of He with whom I desire to walk close with in our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
